"When two families unite, they don't blend, they collide," says Dr. Kevin Leman, bestselling author of The New Birth Order Book. But he also believes, "You can blend a family without breaking it.

By understanding the impact that birth order has on each family member, parents are better equipped to ease the transition into a new, different but functional family unit.

Dr. Leman's books are easy reading with great insight and purpose. With the divorce rate nearly 60%, depending upon who does the research, there are many step families in today's society. Many couples go into their second and third marriages almost as blind as most of us do the first. One of the big differences is that there are usually children involved in marriages after the first one. And while the single parent may be much more aware of the mistakes they made in their first marriage, most are unaware of the dynamics their children will be experiencing. Living in a Step Family without Getting Stepped on helps adults become aware of some of the issues their children will be facing so they are not "blind sided" when the family does not live "happily ever after" when they are united by marriage.
